At least 30 policemen were seen in and around the home of former Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joy Nunieh on Thursday morning.
Ms. Nunieh was billed to attend the investigative hearing of the Senate on the NDDC in Abuja but was prevented from leaving the premises by members of the Nigeria Police who broke into her residence at 4am.
According to Sahara Reporters, a family source said;
*Nunieh just called me now. The police have taken over her house since 4:00am in Port Harcourt. She is expected to testify before the House of Reps today. With a noticeable distress in her voice, she alleged the police broke into her premises and she expected they would take her away soon.”
Ms Nunieh accused the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio of orchestrating the grand corruption ongoing at the NDDC. She also alleged that the minister removed her from office because she refused to commit illegalities on his behalf.
According to Ms Nunieh, Akpabio attempted to harrass her sexually and tried to make her swear an oath of loyalty to him.
